Why are Men’s Rights Activists so bad at memes?

what if i told you you don't need so many words when you're making a meme, it really just clutters up the picture and makes it hard to read, I mean the whole point of memes is that they're really supposed to be readable at a glance, not a wal of text. You're supposed to be making a meme not writing a goddamn book
He’s right, you know

Design-wise, memes aren’t exactly complicated. For the most part they simply consist of an image with some words pasted onto it.

The Transformed Wife, Part 2: The Joys of Obligatory Married Sex

Looking forward to a life of unwanted sex with this dude

Yesterday, we looked at some of the Twitter “teachings” of The Transformed Wife, a reactionary pro-am housewife with strong feelings about Jesus, fornication, and witchcraft. (Not all at the same time.)

The Top Five things about women I learned from The Federalist’s “Flyover women” article

Makin’ babies

Carrie Gress is a Fellow who doesn’t want to live like a man. Gress, a five-time mother and a fellow at a think tank called, rather generically, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, has just published a piece in The Federalist celebrating what she calls the “flyover women” — the salt-of-the-earth, sometimes not-so-glamorous mothers who stand up against Cultural Marxism and “radical feminism” and jobs, if possible.

The Five People You Meet on Parler

So Parler has been in the news a lot lately, as a number of prominent conservatives and far-right figures have been talking up the “free speech” platform as an alternative to Twitter, which they think is too quick to censor their terrible tweets.

When is a clinical psychologist not a clinical psychologist? When she’s Bettina Arndt

By David Futrelle

Bettina Arndt has had quite a week, so far. On Sunday, the Aussie Men’s Rights Activist and sometime-pedophile-defender was inexplicably awarded one of Australia’s highest honors for her alleged “services to gender equity,” sparking a massive outcry from feminists and others actually committed to equality.

La-Z-Boy: The all-but-official chair of the Men’s Rights Movement

By David Futrelle

There are few creatures on this planet who are more badly misnamed than the Men’s Rights Activist.
